The strip yield model is widely used to describe crack tip plasticity in front of a crack. In the strip yield model the stress in the plastic zone is considered as known, and stress and deformation fields can be obtained from elastic solutions using the condition that the crack tip stress singularity vanishes.

The strip yield model is generally regarded to be valid to describe small scale plasticity at a crack tip. The present paper examines the behavior of the strip yield model at the transition to large-scale plasticity and its relationship to net section plasticity descriptions. A bar in bending with a single edge crack is used as an illustrative example to derive solutions and compare with one-sided and two-sided plasticity solutions.
